This information is useful for any emergency where folks will be isolated - something we should all be prepared for. Better to be prepared than scared.
This book has it all and is well worth the expense.
Unlike some other books and articles Dr. Woodson presents balanced realistic recommendations that will work for most people. For example, Dr. Woodson gives specific recommendations for when you should stay and home and when it is safe to go to work. He lists a clear time line of actions that should be taken at specific times during a pandemic to maximize your safety. He writes about many aspects of life during a pandemic that some people may not have thought about such as what to do when all the mortuaries are full and the psychological consequences of surviving a severe pandemic.
This book guides you though advanced preparations you need to make to be prepared for a pandemic. It addresses food, water, energy, heating, cooking, security, hygiene and forming a pandemic survival group. He has many specific recommendations on products to consider based on his research and personal testing. I found the section on forming a pandemic survival group particularly helpful and based on that and the knowledge I gained from reading this book am going to form a neighborhood pandemic survival group.
This book would be an extraordinarily valuable resource to have on the shelf during a pandemic since Dr. Woodson has written 4 chapters on taking care of someone with severe flu. Many flu deaths are preventable with proper medical care and this book teaches you how to provide that care. Since during a flu pandemic hospitals and clinics will quickly reach capacity this is very valuable information to have. One of the chapters is specifically written about taking care of children with bird flu and another is written for medical professionals who want a more detailed discussion about caring for bird flu patients. Unlike some other books that give general guidelines Dr. Woodson gives all the specific information a lay person would need such as how to compound your own medicines, how to make Tamiflu last longer and doses for children based on their weight. This medical advice alone makes the book worth buying.
I think this is an excellent book and am going to buy a copy of this book for all my family members and neighbors.
